DescriptionSingle-tree selection "works" in sugar maple stands in the Lake States. This system of all-age management has been used for 31 years on the Argonne Experimental Forest. In 1953, researchers found that cutting according to basal area guides is both a convenient and effective way to regulate a stand. Later experience showed that achieving good stand structure could be speeded by using a separate basal area guide for each of three sawtimber size classes, instead of lumping them into one sawtimber class.
